Your company perhaps isn't that huge. I could imagine that for huge
companies, it's an advantage not to maintain their own server farms all
over the world, but instead to pay for a company doing it for them.
This is not my domain, I don't know how secure, or insecure this
approach is, compared to maintaining internal server farms all over the
world, but it's easy to imagine that regarding costs and maintenance
huge companies could have reasons to pay for such a service bundle.

However, while
sounds insecure, owning intern server farms, could suffer from the
same issues.
